there and it says barack obama re-elected. chris: it was like 11:20 eastern. >> yeah and it was so instantaneous and the place went berserk. chris: and when mitt romney came out, and he's not a professional politician, but he came out and gave the most professional concession speech i've heard in years. that to me brought clarity. >> he's a first class act. let's face it. mitt romney was always -- i think after that first debate and he picked up the momentum, he was convinced and had been convinced by those around him that he was likely going to win. and the people around him talking about polls and ratings were convinced that the 2008 turnout was not reliable. and that that was just a once in a lifetime event. and that's why i think it was such a crushing surprise to them. that he'd lost. chris: apparently it was. >> for me the defining image of this campaign was in the last week, president obama and the jersey governor, chris christie, together dealing with a big national crisis. and that showed you two things. obama can be a leader for the country in a crisis and here's an image to what the c

in the 2000 campaign. i'm not sure journalists felt they really got mitt romney. brief thought on that? >> yeah, the fact is john mccain, reporters ran out of questions to ask him. i mean, he would talk for -- >> eight-hour rolling press conferences. >> eight hours. and i don't think anybody will do that again in the age of twitter. >> well, maybe they should. if they're secure in their own skin, if a politician is secure in his own skin and they can sit down and talk to reporters about what he really believes, okay? over and over, day after day. i think it helps him out in the end. >> a lot of republicans now want to be interviewed about the depth of this defeat. not just for mitt romney but given the demographic problems that the gop now faces, particularly with hispanic voters. they can be more open with the journalists now, do you think? >> i think so. i think you saw a story in the "washington post" right after. it was either the day after or the next day about some of the soul searching that they're doing. i think we're going to be talking about this for a while. >> right. what b

is afraid of talk radio. it's not the same. talk radio is -- mitt romney gottens and tens of millions of votes. >> yeah. >> there are probably a million people who listen to talk radio. one is much bigger than the other and yet it's afraid. >> david frum, thank you so much for hearing from you. people can read even more about your thoughts behind that premise. thanks so much. good to see you. >> thank you. >>> all right. they have risked their lives and sacrificed and they've come back with lessons for us. coming up, wisdom from u.s. veterans. [ male announcer ] introducing the new dell xps 12. part of a whole new line of tablets from dell. it's changing the conversation. ♪ >>> president barack obama honored the veterans on this veterans day in arlington national cemetery. he then said in his speech this was the first veterans day in ten years that no americans are serving in iraq. the president also said u.s. troops who served abroad in iraq and afghanistan should always be able to rely on support from the u.s. government. so what have we learned from the veterans in your life? >>

, their willingness to vote republican goes up. and yeah, when you have waiting voices in the party and romney i think is one of the worse -- if you were going to say what were the two worst substantive zwigses mitt -- decisions mitt romney made, one auto bailout. and compounding the primary last summer when he spurned marco rubio's dream act compromised. that's number one. number two, just shut up on social/cultural issuesment conservative evangelical christians will not be voting democratic any time soon. i think they need to deliver that message and private, quietly and get the heck away from that. i think if they do too, let me -- how many times in the course of a year do all of you hear someone say, well, i consider myself an economic conservative but. and you fill in the rest of the sentence. and there's a boat load of voters that the republican party is basically pushing away. and that mentality leads to you people making todd aiken kind of statement and people making the kind of richard murdoch kind of statement. and it's kind of like a her matekly -- hermetically sealed party that perpetuates

? >> yeah, it's going to take a lot more than that. first of all, let's remember that mitt romney as a candidate was probably the most hostile to illegal immigration and arguably immigration than any major party candidate had been maybe in my lifetime. or certainly in the last 30 years. john mccain almost lost the republican primary season in 2008 because he was in favor of comprehensive immigration reform. he had to double back. they're going to have to get out of that. they're going to have to be able to say there is a different path forward, not just to citizenship, but to dealing with immigration as an issue, which is complicated, understandably. but start with more actually free market type of solutions and say, hey, look, why are we micromanaging the number of immigrants from each and every country? why don't we expand the number of visas? start with that, certainly. start shutting down people who use immigration as a very passionate and very irrational issue from which to sort of project all of their fears. >> we are already starting to see and hear some of that from folks
